Terravesta is to sponsor ‘The Natural Eye’, the 54th annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA), which runs at Mall Galleries, London, from 19-29th October 2017. As part of the sponsorship, Terravesta has created a new £2,000 prize for the best work exhibited.

“We are very pleased to be supporting the SWLA and The Natural Eye,” said William Cracroft-Eley, chairman of Terravesta. “We are passionate about the environment and sustainable agriculture both here in the UK and elsewhere, so it is a natural fit to become involved with the Society in this way.”

Welcoming the sponsorship announcement, SWLA President Harriet Mead said: “It is a delight to announce Terravesta as the sponsor of The Natural Eye. Their support will make a real difference to the exhibition, facilitating a raft of activities to make the event even more attractive for both visitors and artists. The creation of a major prize is an additional benefit and is particularly welcome.”

The Natural Eye shows the very best of art inspired by the natural world. The open exhibition includes a wide range of contemporary work from both SWLA members and non-members, selected from open submission, which celebrates the wild whether close to home or further afield. The different approaches to the subject ensure a delightful mix of the detailed to the more abstract in many different media including oils, watercolours, pastels, printmaking, drawing and sculpture.

“The work exhibited in previous years has been magnificent so we’re excited to see the final selection for the 2017 show,” added Cracroft-Eley. “I know that the choice of a ‘best in show’ exhibit for the Terravesta Prize is going to be extremely difficult.”
